The home of linguistics and language-sciences at Virginia Tech

Linguistics is a discipline devoted to the scientific study of natural language, while the term "Language Sciences" more broadly captures research on language in any discipline.

VTLx is an informal network of faculty at Virginia Tech whose research and teaching involve linguistics or the language sciences.

Our members are based in English, Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Computer Science, Construction Engineering, Engineering Education, Religion and Culture, Theatre, and Industrial Systems Engineering. 

Please look around the site to learn more about undergraduate courses we offer (including the Language Sciences Minor), and our research interests and resources
